My sister was diagnosed with stage 4b cervical cancer. She has undergone surgery, chemo, radiation. She feels alone in her fight not knowing of any other stage 4b survivors. Please post so I can help show her that she is not the only one out there.

Jen,
Sorry to hear about your sister. I am a one year survivor of stage IVA cervical cancer and I can understand her feelings of solitaire. I have sought others at my stage without success. But I plan to be a success story...so tell her to stop by and chat. There's alot of support here.

I'm new to this board because my wife was just diagnosed with Stage iv b cervical cancer. She had a hysterectomy 3 years ago to remove the cancer which as stage 1 and she was cancer free up to a year ago. We are devastated.

Any updates on your progress would be appreciated.

Hi beckyracn!! I just read your post about being cancer free. Can you kindly tell me what kind of medicine the doctor used to treat your cancer. I have a stage 4b and my doctor just going to list of medicine hoping one of them will work. Please let me know.

Thank you,

hello
I was wandering around the discussion board, I am usually on the uterine cancer discussion area , but found this and this post, I have stage 4 b grade 3 endometrial cancer, uterine cancer that grew to the abdomen . have been looking for survivors and success stories,
right now at the moment. I have no cancer detected after historectomy and 6 rounds of taxol , andromisin, and cisplatin (sp) , doc says that most of the time it recurs but , "most of the time " not all the time so that gives me some ray of hope, been up and down about this. stopped me dead in my tracks, as I travel for work all summer long and caught the cancer 1 week before I was to go out for the summer!
what chemo have your docs have you on? 1 year! that is a long time to be on chemo!
I will be praying for ya ,
cathy K

HI, SORRY IT TOOK SO LONG TO ANSWER U. I HAVE STAGE FOUR UTERAN CANCER. I HAD A LARGE TUMOR THAT WAS TAKEN OUT IN SURGERY. I WAS IN ICU FOR TWO DAYS AFTER THAT I WAS TOLD IT WAS DUE TO BLEEDING AND BREATHING PROBLEMS. THEN AFTER THAT I WAS DIAG. WITH METASTATIC UTERINE SARCOMA. MY DR. WOULD NOT TELL ME HOW LONG I WOULD BE ON CHEMO BECAUSE HE SAID HE DID NOT KNOW EXACTLY. THEN LATER HE TOLD ME PROBABLY A YEAR. I HAVE BEEN DOING CHEMO ONCE EVERY MONTH SINCE LAST APRIL. I ALSO TAKE A PILL CALLED FEMARA EVERY DAY.
BY THE TIME THEY FOUND MY CANCER ITS WAS PRETTY BAD. I LOT OF THE THINGS THAT HAPPEN TO ME DURING THIS I DONT EVEN REMEMBER BUT MY FAMILY HAS FILLED IN A LOT OF THE BLANKS, LIKE I DIDNT EVEN KNOW THAT I WAS IN ICU TILL A FEW MONTHS AGO WHEN MY SISTER TOLD ME. I HAD THOUGHT I WENT TO SURGERY ,THEN TO RECOVERY, THEN MY ROOM BUT NO, I WAS IN ICU FOR TWO DAYS. I WAS IN SURGERY FOR A VERY LONG TIME BECAUSE OF THE BLEEDING THEY COULD NOT STOP IT. THEN I HAD BREATHING PROBLEMS ALSO. I WASNT TOLD ABOUT HOW BAD THE CANCER WAS RIGHT AWAY. I WAS TOLD I HAD CANCER, BUT NOT HOW BAD IT WAS UNTIL I ASKED, WHICH WASNT TILL A COUPLE OF DAYS LATER. THE DR. TOLD MY FAMILY THAT I WAS IN SHOCK, AND NEED TO PROCESS WHAT WAS GOING ON AND THAT HE WOULD TALK TO ME WHEN I ASKED HIM AND HE KNEW I WOULD BE READY TO HEAR ABOUT IT IN DETAIL WHEN I CAME TO HIM MY SELF AND HE WAS RIGHT .
THKS FOR ASKING AND I APPRECIATE VERY MUCH YOUR PRAYERS.

SO GRATEFUL, DIANE

Kim,
There are many of us survivors out here. Don't go believing in old statistics. We are all unique and don't fit into those little boxes. First, ask your doc questions. Don't guess...are you a stage 4 or not?! You will scare yourself silly otherwise. Stay informed. The more knowledge you have the more powerful you will feel...and you need that right now. Also, post in the uterine board. There are many wonderful women there who have been through what your are experiencing right now...and are survivors!!!
Sorry that you've joined the ranks. Good luck with everything!
((HUGS))

Hello I was diagnosed with 4 b cervical cancer Sept 2010 I started Chemo in Oct and now I am on my 18th round the tumor and lymps are "Stable" no new growth in the last year , I am however starting to feel a little distant from my dr and wonder if any of you out there have changed ships midstream? She is more in to Gyn Surgeries and At this time I am not a canidate ... Yesterday she basically told me I would be on Chemo until I died which is not exactly what I wanted to hear ;-( I am only 49 and really want to fight this with all my might

Hi brokentree! I have a stage 4b as will recurrence. It's been stage 4b since March 2011 and now it metastasized to my spleen, both lungs, abdomen region and tibia left leg bone. I haven't given up and searching people with the same problem with mine that one day if they read my post they will share how they beat their cancer as I'm still battling mine. I am 43 years old and would like to know what kind of medicine your doctor is using not to further the growth because mine is spreading as my doctor don't really know which medicine will work. Please let me know. God bless!!

Truly appreciated,
gingkjv1611

I was diagnosed with stage 4b cervical cancer 2 years ago. I was told I couldn't be "cured", that the cancer had spread too far. I underwent aggressive treatment by the recommendation of a different doctor that worked with the first Dr. and my PET scans have been clear for a year. I was treated with two types of chemo and 26 doses of multifocal gamma knife radiation before I became a candidate for surgery. I would need a doctor that was more encouraging than what you describe. The original Dr. now calls me her "poster child". Is radiation an option for you? It was my oncology radiologist, not my oncology gynecologist/surgeon that suggested the aggressive treatment.

Kim, I think the worst thing to do is too much reading online as far as statistics. They scared me as well. I was diagnosed at 39 with stage 4a cervical cancer. It was too far advanced that they wouldnt do surgery. My tumor was protruding into my bladder, so I had to have a neuphrostomy bag put in on my right kidney as well as a leg cath. Did chemo and radiation and high dose radiation. I just celebrated my 1 yr of cancer free on June 29. Do not let negativity into your head. Positive people and a positive frame of mind along with treatment is the whole battle. Are you going to be sick, yes. Are you going to wonder from time to time "why me?" yes. The questions that you ask yourself sometimes cant be answered. Everything happens for a reason. I believe my mother had cancer to teach me how to deal with it. Maybe I can pass that forward and inspire someone else not to give up hope and become "statistics"

I agree that you can scare yourself by looking too much into statistics. I get asked all the time what stage I'm in, I skirt around the question because I don't want to be treated like today is going to be my last day. Yes, realistically I know the odds are now against me for a long life (I've gone three rounds with adenocarcinoma), but I'm just the type of person that won't give in. I look in the mirror and tell myself all the time "Yes, the cancer will get the better of me someday, but it's not going to be today."...and I go on with my life. As a matter of fact I feel like a much stronger person now because of all that I have been through. My body is worn and scarred from multiple surgeries, but alive still I am!

I was diagnosed on my birthday, April 19th. Started chemo on May 6th. Did 6 rounds of Cisplatin/Taxtere ever 3 weeks. Did a PET/CT about 3 weeks after my 6th chemo and it showed ZERO cancer activity. The main tumor is gone as well as the mets throughout my lymphnode which were lit up from my groin to my collarbone. By physical exam they feel nothing but what they think is just scar tissue. I am currently going through radiation as it is standard protocal. I will have a total of 27 or 28 external daily treatments and then 5 weekly internal treatments.

As far as I am concerned, I am a survivor and will be one in my eyes and in my 8 year old little boy's eyes.

To each and every one of you going throught this ( I include all husbands and loved ones), You all are survivors. From the moment you are diagnosed to the the moment you decide to proceed with treatment, you can call yourself survivors. You all inspire me and give me strength just by reading your stories and quick notes. By writing quick blurps on the web for people to find, you are touching someone. Thnk you for reaching out!

Curuk, I am 4b cervical cancer lymph mets. Scary beyond all belief! I am 31 years old, and was diagnosed with fibroids a year and a half ago, which was a big mistake! I am only writing to you because you said you are in Texas, and I am located just south of Dallas. Where are you getting treatments at? How are you dealing with everything? How old are you?

Just so everyone knows, I was diagnosed June 16,2010, and immediately started on chemo and radiation at the same time. I did five weeks of radiation with a booster of radiation for an addition 5 days, which was followed by 4 sessions of internal radiation (not fun). I had a PET scan yesterday, and a preliminary CT showed everything was looking good, so much that the person who read the scan said it looked like i had had surgery, which I have not yet! I find out tomorrow the results of the PET...but no matter what I am here for the long haul! I have three kids, ages 6, 4, and 3 that need their mommy!!!! Good luck to everyone! If you want to vent or talk about your thoughts I am here everyone!!!

YOU GO GIRL!!! I like your ATTITUDE :) Sorry to see you posting here. I can totally understand what you are feeling/going through. I have also had a number of scans where the radiologist reports that sometimes I've had a hysterectomy, other times I have ovaries, sometimes not...etc., etc. I thought these people were supposed to have gone to school for this!
GREAT news that your preliminary CT is good...hope your PET results back it up!!

I am being seen at University Hospital. Was diagnosed in early Aug.2010, Started treatment in sept. Had a 10 cm tumor with mets to lung and liver. Got a 2cm shrinkage in tumor after 1st cisplatin taxol treatment, and doc felt no tumor after second one..that said I have allergies and we delayed the third til next week. He mention doing radiation before last treatment if it had shrunk smaller, but this was dismissed. I also heard him mention a CT scan to see what was going on, as he seemed surprised, but no mention of that now either. I am now thinking of getting a second opinion..seems like they don't like "patient driven care", or so I have been told, so I feel unsure of how to proceed.The treatment seems to be working, but they don't seem to want to put me in the loop..I would love to have seen some results of a CT to boost my fight! I am 47 years old and walked into the doctors office with low back pain and discharge..I thought it was the change of life and a kidney infection. I have a 22 year old and twin 10 year olds.

Hi -just seen this post and would like to chat and hear your story. My sister has the same as you. Although she is waiting on her PET scan to see where it had spread to exactly.She has been diagnosed as stage 4b and starts chemo this Thursday. She will get 2-3 3 weekly sessions then reassessed after an mri and if needed more chemo, if not 30 sessions of radio (some internal).How have you been finding your battle? I know she will be very sick..:(. Hoping that you have received good news since your last post. x

Well, the cisplatin was eventually discontinued due to nerve damage in my ears. The lung and liver mets shrank, but did not go away, so I was put on topotecan which was useless, and the mets grew. My onco gyn sent me to the research folks where I failed the oral kinase inhibitor trial due to an inflamed pancreas...My doc tested me for HER 2, found I was very positive and I am now on a trial with Hercptin, Docetaxel and Carboplatin. Haven't been on long enough for an eval/CT, but the Doc feels this treatment has the best possibilities. Let me know how your Sis is doing and what her treatment plan is. I am still kicking and symptom free,blessings to you both.

Thanks for the update curule. I often wonder how people are doing through their treatments. I'm sorry the cisplatin toxicity got to be too much for you. I hope the new treatment plan puts you with NED for a very long time. Best wishes.

Today my sister got the worst news ever - her cancer is now stage 4b. From going from stage 1b1 3 weeks ago to this is a big shock. We still dont really know where this is going to end? Surgery was an option a few weeks back but isnt now. The cancer has spread in to the tissue around the cervix. Just last week she got lymph nodes removed. We were told today that it was in 3 of the 10 (sounds alright to me but they have mentioned the lungs). she is getting a PET scan organised and starting chemo next week. 2-3 weekly sessions for 3 weeks. Cisplatin? Then she will be getting a MRI and if neededmore chemo. After all this she will be have to get 30 sessions of radiotherapy including internal radiotherapy. My sister is only 35. She is strong and positive. I do the worrying. Is there anyone else who has been through the same? What are her chances of being cured? Doctors not saying much. Just said they want to start treatment.

Stay strong! Your sister will need your support and all your positive vibes. She can get through this. Was the cancer squamous or adenocarcinoma?

Beckyracn,
How are you? I have thought of you over the past few days since your last post mentioned waiting for scan results. All clear, I hope.

Best wishes to all. I am thinking of you all as I am in the throws of cisplatin and radiaiton and already suffering the side effects of both. Ugh. The nausea and the cramping and diahrea are making me miserable. Any words of wisdom to reduce these effects would greatly be appreciated.

No mention of what the cancer is- two words i havent heard of. My sis will be getting that cisplatin too - seen bad side effects.. I am just at a loss. Feel useless. Been so strong all along but now wonder what for? Been bad news all the way? Just wondering how serious this is? Appreciate honesty. Can function better if i know what im dealing with. Have read the worst already - 15% survival rate after 5 yrs for those with stage 4b cervical cancer. She will be strong and i will be with her every step of the way!!

Hope you feel better soon..x

TheRe are several different types of cervical cancers. Squamous is the most common (80%), there's also adenocarcinoma, adenosquamous carcinoma, clear cell, large cell neuroendkcrin, small cell...I think a few other rare ones but can't remember. Her prognosis will in part be determined by the histology, as well as her treatment plan. Waiting for info is very hard and infuriating. Hang in there. One day at a time now.

I have never heard that. Here in the UK i think it is just staged??? (of course there are prob different types but the staging is very important. Why is there noone who has survived stage 4b answering? I dont mean to sound hurtful - i certainly hope i dont come across that way. I just want someone to tell me she'll be ok. Im only the sister and its breaking my heart! Probably only touch the tip of the iceberg on how she feels. Today she said to me she knows that this treatment is only to prolong her life. Felt like i'd been stabbed in the heart. As much as i know it is a possibility i didnt want to hear her say that. Said theres no way she's gonna do yrs of chemo just to stay alive. I was on the defence immediately. Told her I'd see her through this n that she wasnt going anywhere. Please please can someone who has beat this talk to me or if anyone knows any other sites please share. x

I was diagnosed on April 1st 2011 , I had 5 weeks of radiation therapy as well as 5 weeks of cistaplatan at the same time then I had a week of internal radiation brachytheraphy ..I have papillary serious carcinoma ...it was in one kidney stem ,my lymph nodes cervix and womb , in November they tried to do a hysterectomy and removed only my ovaries and tubes where they now found an ovarian cancer which they say is connected to the other cancer but is a different cancer .... I am surviving I am doing good am 48 years old and have a 22 ear old daughter and 14 year old son . I will keep going I won;t be beaten by cancer . I am not starting chemo again for the ovarian cancer they removed as they found cells in fluid that was around the tumor , They could not remove my cervix and uterus cause of scar tissue from radiation .
I am on 6 rounds of carbo/taxol this time every three week dose and its doable am sick for about 5 days about 2 days after the chemo is given then am ok basically back to normal ........good luck with everything for your sister .... my cervical cancer seems to be dormant which is fine with me now we just kill these ovarian cells ....

I just wanted to post something and say this: Thank you! My aunt, age 33, mother of 3 is currently battling stage IVB Cervical Cancer. The cancer is no longer in her cervics, but has metastisized into her lung. My mother just told me what was her 4th different kind of chemo is not working and now they want to begin her on chemo pills. She is currently being treated at Cancer Treatment Centers of America. I don't know all of the details, yet. But, thank you, all of you. these survior stories are amazing and has me in tears. I don't want continue to look in her 6, 7, and 13 year old children's eyes as they ask "why?" It isnt fair to her or my cousins. I just want everything to be okay.

I am sorry for your aunt t's diagnosis.  I am glad you found us here, and know that the fight is worth it, remission IS possible, and there are many different treatment options left When one fails.  I hope your aunt keeps up the good fight, and will be praying for her and her children to make it through the war and live a long healthy life on the other side.  Hugs.

I was diagnosed with stage 4b cervical cancer 2 years ago. My PET scans have been clear for a year. I was treated with two types of chemo (Cisplatin and Topotecan) and radiation before I became a candidate for and had surgery. I am about to celebrate my 43rd birthday.Being strong and positive is so important, and though I was pretty much a zombie during the worst parts of my treatment, but always just KNEW the horrors of treatment would be worth it.

Last year I was diagnosed with 4b cervical cancer. I had. Huge mass on the cervix a small one up in my next, another small one midd abdomen. I also had a huge mass on my ovary the size of a large cantelope, small watermelon. I refer to everything in past tense because I have just finished chemo, radiation and surgery and am in remission!

It is possible! I was a mess when I was diagnosed. But I fought it, attitude is everything. The patient, the family and friends all need to cuss out the cancer.

well I had my last scan CT after the last round of carbo/taxol for the ovarian cancer and my CT scan is ..BEAUTIFUL ... a few dots but my Doc says prolly scar tissue . He is very pleased and I swear this doc is not pleased easily. So if I can stay like this for 2 years he said I might be classed as remission. Am pretty happy as I was told I would never be in remission.

So since scan was June 20th am now stable and cancer uncontrolled I will take that ....I AM A SURVIVOR of stage 4B cancer ... I realy like the sound of that

I had and I say had ' pappilary serious carsonoma "

hugs (((((( )))))))))) Donna xox

P.S. i had cervical cancer then they found a mass on my ovaries a small tumor on kidneys and my lymph nodes were tumors they ranged from 10 cm to 2 cm
